    Default BLW the problem with carrot.

    Dd is 6 months old and we have just started doing blw. After a bit of a rocky start she seems to be getting the hang of food and swallowing a bit more, now there is not so much projectile vomiting, more just a steady ****** of Chuck as she eats (charming I know)
    Anywho
    Loves broccoli and zucchini and chews on both but for some reason tries to suck carrot. This is a problem when the carrot gets sucked all the way into her gob, moreso when a chunk breaks off and is sucked into the back of her mouth. Is this normal?
    Also can they have lsa at this age? I'm making her some brekky food and wanted to chuck some lsa in.

    I used to roast carrot as I found it went squishier than steaming and didn't break of in chunks

    I have been putting LSA and chia seeds in just about everything from 6 months - it is just whole seeds or flax seeds that they have trouble digesting but ground is fine

    I was going to use the mesh feeders when bub starts wanting solids cause I'm worried about big bits just breaking off etc. apparently they're really good!

    the mesh feeders can get really feral cos the food can get stuck in them.

    mesh feeders aren't part of BLW either. Gagging is part of the learning process.

    I have used a mesh feeder once or twice, mostly for frozen mango and peach when her gums are sore. The frozen bit makes it too cold for her to hold.

    DD never liked the mesh feeder. She didn't get it and used to throw it

    When I steamed the carrots I would steam them til they were quite soft. She loved that she could hold them and didn't seen to have an issue with them.

    Roasting also sounds like a brilliant idea!
